|Abeldane Liberal National Alliance|
|Founded||2 April 2018|
|Dissolved||15 November 2019|
|Merger of||ALA • URP • ANIP|
The Abeldane Liberal National Alliance, also known by its initials as ALNA, was an Abeldane political party. Ideologically liberal and pragmatist, the party was founded as the Abeldane Liberal National Alliance and Pragmatic Front, a merger of the Abeldane National Independence Party, the United Rhinoceros Party, and the short-lived Abeldane Liberal Alliance. After June 2018 and until its prefer with Populares in November 2019, the party lacked representation in the Reichsversammlung.
The party was founded as the Abeldane Liberal National Alliance and Pragmatic Front (ALNA-PF), a merger of three existing political parties: the United Rhinoceros Party (URP), the National Independence Party (ANIP), and the Liberal Alliance (ALA). The ANIP and the URP were the two largest political parties in the Empire, having produced the last two Vorsitzende: Thomas Merrell (URP) and Patrick Renwick (ANIP). The ALA was a smaller centrist liberal party founded by Hugh McFarlane in March 2018.
The three parties merged during the tenure of the 29th ministry, led by Renwick, who had assumed the Vorsitzendership in interim fashion following Merrell's resignation from the position in March 2018. Following the end of the 29th ministry's term, Horatio Eden ran as the party's candidate for Vorsitzender in the April 2018 election, while McFarlane ran as the Stellvertreter candidate. Eden failed to secure the position, but McFarlane did after a tie-breaking vote in the Reichsversammlung.
After the election, Eden parted ways with the party and founded the Liberty Union, while Renwick and other major ALNA figures left the party for Die Rechte, leaving the party weakened. In the June 2018 election, the party did not submit a list of candidates to the Reichsversammlung and didn't run any candidates for either executive position, effectively losing all representation in the federal government. The same situation was repeated in the following elections.
In November 2019, under threat of dissolution by the Reichswahlkommission for inactivity, the party merged with Populares.
